review by
Mike Haberfelner

Bea (Thaddea Graham) and her Irregulars - Spike (McKell David), Billy (Jojo Macari) and Leopold (Harrison Osterfield) - but minus their empath Jessie (Darci Shaw) investigate the case of a thief of limbs and organs who apparently has the weird power to immediately heal the injuries he or she caused. Bea thinks the case is one reminiscent of many years ago, and figures to track down whoever it is they have to follow the trail that Watson (Royce Pierreson), by now their adversary, leaves behind. And eventually they meet Edith Dubois (Anna Maxwell Martin), who back in the day got hold of some supernatural object that Watson eventually relieved her off to open a portal - or rip, as it's called here - which gives random people random superpowers. It gave her the power to understand plants, and now she uses that power to make a new body for her dead husband (Tom Goodwin) out of the body parts she has stolen. Thing is, the reanimated husband isn't very happy about being back among the living, so he strangles her and then himself. Watson was actually Edith's captive, and when the Irregulars free him he admits to have opened the rip back when, but has since gotten rid of the supernatural thingie, so he's as clueless as our heroes as to who has opened it now and how to close it. The only person who might know is Jessie ...

Jessie has teamed up with Sherlock Holmes (Henry Lloyd-Hughes), figuring his powers of deduction will help her figure out what's going on without going back into her nightmares again. But Holmes proves to be a total dud. Then Bea asks her to go back into her nightmares again to figure out what's going on, upon which Jessie runs away and meets up with a fellow empath (Clarke Peters) she has met and bonded with in her dreams, to find out he doesn't want to help her but open the rip even wider ...

A subplot has Bea find out that Leopold is actually the Prince of England, and even if she had only just been madly in love with him now she doesn't want to have any more to do with him as he hasn't been honest with her. And another subplot has Billy meet up with his minder (Alex Ferns) from the workhouse again, and ultimately killing him in a fight he has tried to avoid at all costs, which lands him in jail ...

 

The last couple of episodes of The Irregulars were actually pretty solid as compared to the early ones, but this one falls apart again, as the more is revealed of the series' underlying mythology, the sillier it becomes, and this is really an episode that goes all out Marvel Comics in just giving random characters random superpowers without any real rhyme or reason, and with throwing logic overboard. The other main problem that permeates the series really comes to the fore again here, even though class divide is clearly a subject in the whole Bea-and-Leopold subplot, the titular Irregulars just don't talk like street kids and don't have streetsmart attitudes. In short, not one of the better episodes of the series.
